I was going to Winnipeg. You could see the highway for tens of miles ahead. Three lanes, just a hand full of cars. Hence, I stepped on it. My buddy was on the passenger seat with the binocular, checking from time to time the incomming cars. 100 Km/h zone and we were going 180 -210 Km/h. Dream like, only better.
The road ahead started narrow down from 3 lanes to one. No cars ahead of us, few dots behind. (the cars we just passed 35 seconds ago).
210... ... Zoom, zoom, zoom... ..
On the incomming lane a 16 wheeler stoped on the side of the road with the flashers... ... I started to reduce the speed.
190... still ok... ..
As soon as we passed the truck we've seen the police cruiser.
This is how there were hidding
When I saw them it was too late. I put the signal and I waited for them.
- "Licence and registration please"
- "Do you know how fast you were going?"
- "Sorry officer but I was paying attention to the road not to the speedometer. However, I believe I was a little bit over the speed limit."
They throw my ass in jail, charged with "Dangerous Driving" which is an offences under The Criminal Code of Canada, fined me with 600 bucks, suspended my driver licence for a year. If I would have been a Manitoba resident they could have had suspended my licence for life
